Celebrating Somerset as a place to live, learn, work and play

Somerset Day inspires a pride in our historic county and all it has to offer.

Officially marked annually on 11th May, Somerset Day unites those who live, work in and visit Somerset.

Historically known as ‘the land of the summer people’, many have flocked to our hidden treasure of a county to relish in the stunning countryside, historic cities, abundant produce, festival culture and rich heritage as well as our thriving business community.

Somerset Day recognises all that is good within our county and encourages strong relationships amongst local communities and businesses.

Somerset Day boasts opportunities for everyone to get involved.

On 11th May and the surrounding weeks, Somerset springs to life with hundreds of events taking place across the county.

Somerset Day is run by the not-for-profit Somerset Day Community Interest Company, who champion this day to ensure our county isn’t just a well-kept secret, but known to be open for business and welcome to visitors all year round.

We’re always looking to work alongside interested and passionate individuals, communities or organisations who are eager to promote Somerset, and support their local communities.
